today said that the u.n. will conduct an investigation into the matter and said such a move would amount to crimes against humanity. now, yesterday, president obama said if an investigation shows the syrians did indeed use chemical weapons, weapons of mass destruction that would be a game-changer. and now it appears support in congress is sprouting for some kind of u.s. military action. to wit: a joint letter to the president, the chairman of the senate armed services committee, michigan democrat senator carl levin and the arizona republican senator john mccain today called for limited air strikes on certain syrian regime targets namely syrian air bases and missile batteries. "the fox report's" correspondent jonathan hunt is live at the united nations for us tonight. jonathan? this sounds like a significant u.n. investigation. >> well, yes, it certainly has the potential to be significant in that it could be the first independent, unbiased investigation into the several claims we have so far heard that chemical weapons have been used during the syrian civil war. on the other hand, remem
that netanyahu got something good for this. what he essentially did is apologize for defending israel. the u.n. of all places passed a report, put out a report saying that israel was justified in self-defense and they were justified in in. >> chris: three years ago a turkish ship with people and aid activists tried to breach the israeli block kade of gaza to bring supplies to the palestinians in gaza and the israelis raided it and ended up killing nine of the people. >> that was not just peace and humanitarian people. they had weapons and attacked threw israeli soldeddiers into the sea. the u.n. issued a report saying israel had a right to defend itself and maintain that block kade. now, the president leaned on israel to issue some type of apology. did they get something in return? i hope so. otherwise it looks like obama is leaning on the israelis. bad signal to the rest of the region. >> chris: with all of the focus on syria and iran there was relatively little talk about the prospects for a peace deal between the israelis and palestinians but the president did address it in this speech in j
a speech to the u.n. on wmds. watch this. >> he walked in my office with a sheet of papers on my hand and threw it down and said that's the script of my presentation at the united nations. it came from the vice president's office. it was junk. it was pure junk. i was in charge of putting it together. >> powell and wilkerson tear up the original 48-page script and start over with a team from the state department and cia. director george tenant suggests they base their presentation on the national intelligence estimate, which unbeknownst to paul is a deeply flawed document. >> we went into a room and he said sit down and he sat down. we were the only two people in the room. he looked at me and said, this bull [ bleep ] of contacts with al qaeda has got to be taken out. >> we found out powell and wilkerson both wanted to take out the al qaeda connection to suddam. so what happened? >> well, it doesn't come out. it remains to be part of the case that -- >> even though they knew it was garbage? >> yeah. and one of the things that's hard to reconcile with is the figure of colin powell in al
obama went over there to broker any peace deals. netanyahu went to the u.n. and he laid out the time line. he mentioned it was this spring. >> sean: red line? >> he is playing catch-up and for the president to be doing that is embarrassing. he is icing words through weakness. he is not using peace through strength. >> sean: national security for oil. look at north dakota, 3% unemployment. >> i think that obama did something, two good things. one, is to publicly recognize the jewish state and the roots of the jews and religion which was important for the rest of the world. >> sean: is that really so good? >> so for him to say that, it was a good things. and now, he wants the palestinians to recognize the jewish state. this is not going to happen. >> sean: i wanted to get your reaction? >> i spent a good amount of time in israel just over a month ago talking with their ministers and talking with the people. they are guarded. that is the only way i can say. they are guarded about american leadership and they understand our culture. we talk about the red line and who gives netanyahu the
know that the u.n. is moving forward on investigation of exactly what happened. we're monitoring the situation ourselves. i have said publicly that the use of chemical weapons by the assad regime would be a game changer from our perspective because once you let that situation spin out of control, it's very hard to stop and can have enormous spillover effects across the region. >> gregg: the general is retired four-star general and fox news military analyst. pleasure to see you. thanks so much. you know, the rebels to overthrow assad desperately need weapons but they need intel. they have to know where the troop movements are. are they getting it in some way? >> they are finally starting to get it from us. i am delighted to see the increased support for the rebels. they are providing intelligence to them. they are downloading from satellite imagery and listening to what the syrian military is doing on the ground. we have enormous eavesdropping capability and we have human intelligence in terms of what is taking place. now that is bees funneled into some of the rebels, not all of t
colin powell made that infamous just outlandish presentation to the u.n., four washington post-columnists cheered him saying there's no debate anymore. sadaam hussein has to be taken out. mainstream media was by far probably the worst failure of the last half century. >> war always good for ratings. i'd like to ask you about what the organization of women's freedom in iraq entails answered what are your thoughts today on this 10 year anniversary? i remember in 2003 when i decided to go back home, and the idea was that this war cannot bring anything good to iraq. you cannot bring anything good by bombing and killing. it's an arsenal of killing that was sent to the other side of the world. women cannot benefit from that. and besides we had the feeling that creating the vacuum in iraq would bring in the bad influences of the region, with some of them that come from saudi arabia, some from iran and that cannot be good for iraqi women. in the previous regime time, which was under a dictatorship, but still women were able to be educated, go to work and i'm an example of that. i was a
the beginning. i thought if there's a reason to invade another country, having to make a case in front of the u.n. assembly doesn't seem like it is warranted. war should be obvious, the reason should be obvious. >> nada bakos, former cia analyst, thank you so much for joining us tonight. >> thank you. >> friday at 9:00 p.m., watch a special replay of hubris, selling the iraq war, followed by talking hubris. >>> coming up, how losing presidential campaigns can lead to a rewarding career as a tv commercial actor. >>> and stephen colbert's sister was a big winner in south carolina. we will have the latest in that congressional race coming up. re. hmm, we need a new game. ♪ that'll save the day. ♪ so will bounty select-a-size. it's the smaller powerful sheet. the only one with trap + lock technology. look! one select-a-size sheet of bounty is 50% more absorbent than a full size sheet of the leading ordinary brand. use less. with the small but powerful picker upper, bounty select-a-size. a talking car. but i'll tell you what impresses me. a talking train. this ge locomotive can tell you exactly wh
state and a viable independent palestinian state. >> but israel is already a state. it is u.n. recognized. it is a state. the two-state solution presumes that israel isn't already a state. and abbas has written that he will never recognize israel's sovereignty. and creating a two states will only give them cause to internationalize a legal conflict with israel. >> the reality as we know it now, this is not, i'm not really debating this particular question. it is israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who does not truly accept what we call a settlement based on a two-state solution. an independent, viable state. for the palestinians, in the west bank and gaza and occupied east jerusalem in a viable independent israeli state in the very heart of the arab world. you're absolutely correct. israel is an independent state. the question to you and to many israelis, israel must embed itself in its environment. israel must be integrated into the region as a good citizen as long as the palestinians, and i'm both as a scholar of the middle east and also as an american. as long as the
look good for a press release to be able to say you're getting some progress in the u.n. but the only way we're going to be able to achieve that two-state solution is through direct negotiations. >> abbas has also threatened to report israel to the international criminal court for human rights violations. do you think that overall that this trip is really a lot about sort of managing relationships more than solving problems? >> well, i think the relationships are extremely important. if the palestinians went to the international criminal court, that would set back, i think, the prospects for peace and the two-state solution. i think the president will make that clear. but i do think establishing the personal relationships, talking to the people, very important. the united states will play a critical role and those personal relationships could take you a long way. >> senator ben cardin, always good to see you. thank you for coming on the program. matt, do you have a sense of what the white house would consider a successful trip? >> that's an interesting question. i think if he gets goo
eastern countries but in terms of world opinion. look at the vote in the u.n. when we made every single effort possible to discourage countries from voting in favor of palestinian membership in the u.n. how many votes out of 190, out of 190 did we get? we found only seven countries to support us. this tells us something. and, therefore, we have to be very, very clear inning on ourselves what are our interests, how do we promote them? and we make it clear to the israelis on decisions of war and peace that involve us, namely, particularly in regards to iran, we are the ones who make the decisions. >> senator coons, a fairly interesting appearing yesterday of two united states senators, john mccain and carl levin of michigan in urging the administration to consider tougher steps with regard to syria. and when you hear repeatedly the phrase about chemical weapons perhaps being used in syria, the shadow of iraq seems to come back to many people. weapons of mass destruction. what is your sense within the united states senate right now about that shadow that got us into iraq lurking over any p
mortars fell near a mascus hotel where u.n. staffers have been staying. >> all of the national staff at that office have been asked to work from home until further notice. these measures are being undertaken solely for security reasons. the united nations remains active and committed to helping the syrian side in this political solution. >> this news comes as soil and blood samples are being smuggled out of syria, now in the hands of the u.n. they're testing it for nerve gas after the assad regime and the rebel forces accused one another of shooting off deadly missiles suspected of carrying chemical weapons. >>> and this is a sign you need new brakes. look at this. a cadillac smack dab on a roof of a house in california. the couple inside told our affiliate wabc they were driving down a hill and couldn't stop, turn a corner. next thing they knew, boom, off the road, in the air, on a roof. >> the air bag deployed and i don't even see where we're going from there because the view was obscured and i just couldn't stop. we're very, very lucky. >> so lucky indeed. a neighbor used a ladder
the planes are delivering humanitarian aid but the u.n. wants them stop for inspections in iraq before they continue to syria, and some see this is part of an american failure to suspectfully confront iran. >> fundamentally this is not a syria problem. this is an iran problem. what has impeded the administration's policy for the last two years since the conflict in syria began is an unwillingness to take on iran. that's the source of the trouble. that's where the key support for the assad regime comes from. >> there is no immediate indicate iraq will crackdown on the iranian flights. >>heather: steve, thank you from washington, dc. >> syria's western-backed opposition is reportedly in disarray after the president resigned early today in a surprise announcement saying he was frustrated with the international community and the opposition body itself. analysts say the chaos threatens to undermine the group's bid to unite forces against president assad and could also hamper support from the united states and other countries. >>heather: despite death threats, former pakistani president is b
